"The play treats its characters as caricatures of frenzied backwoods folk, never eliciting the empathy one should feel in this Greek-like tragedy; twanging up a storm, the actors do their best with repetitive dialogue, a confusing story line and intermittent breaks into song. At the play’s contrived climax, Agatha warns young Kylie, 'Don’t look back. Leave now.' One feels the same way exiting the theater." Full Review

Slut: The Play
Lower E Side

for a previous production "Katie Cappiello’s powerhouse script examines the double standard that celebrates sexual activity by boys but denigrates it for girls...The girls’ realistic dialogue makes the audience feel as though it were sitting in the gym locker room, overhearing painfully intimate conversations...Compelling and heartfelt performances by the impressive all-female cast fill out this insightful look at the sensitive issues of rape and cyberbullying. To miss it would be a shame." Full Review
